Most of the people working at petstores see it as a paycheck. Its the biggest problem im faced with working at a petco. I work part-time, i may only be in 2 times a week, then not in for a week. In that week quite a bit can happen. On the topic of calci-sand, small (well more like tiny) victory there. The leopard geckoes are now on white repti-sand. Its not much better then calci-sand, but it is a much finer grain. Not wuite the repti-carpet i've been asking for, but its a small step. Typhanie, What part of VA is that petstore in?
